May 5 2011

Today was spent moving plants in the gardens and putting in some that are newly acquired.  Trying to visualize what is there as of last fall, especially since I had moved some things then, made me dizzy!  

I have fallen for Verbascum, the vertical aspect they bring to the garden, their drought tolerance and their long show of blooms, so the hunt is on!

Tip:  Last year I photographed the gardens in each month with my digital camera.  The idea                  is to have a visual record to go back to so that you can decide what to put where if you are planning on moving things in the spring. It also helps for when you come across an emerging plant and you have no idea what it is.
